Default Am I allowed a peek???

Hi everyone
If any of you have had your xrays, can you enlighten me as to whether I'm allowed to open the x ray packet? Been for x rays today (medicals in 2 weeks), and we have the report sealed as expected, but they've also sealed the x ray packet. Thought I'd read threads before when people had actually looked at theirs, just curious.

course you can, you take a peek its only a load of old bones.
its the medical forms that you must keep sealed when the doctors done his thing or hers.
mines sat at the side of me do you want a peek !
we had to send the wifes with the medicals,because of a tecnicality with the film so i thought why not take another. and they looked the same as mine except for the threpenny bits.
yours tipper.

You can look at the film. Just not the Radiologists' report which is sealed. If the
X-Rays are *IN* the sealed envelope, you cannot open it. It should be sealed with the
Radiologists' signature across it.

If there were any abnormalities they were supposed to speak to you about them and in
most cases they show you on the film what they're talking about. Sounds like you
didn't get the luxury.

I say don't touch it or you may be in for doing that portion of the process again.

hi when i had my x-ray the doctor showed it to me before he put it in the envelope. saying there wasnt anything to worry about. also after having the medical and taking it with me, the doctor let me take it home. but i wouldnt open it if its sealed. just ask the doctor at your medical if you can have a look. good luck lor

Hi
Thanks for the replies. I think I'll err on the side of caution, leave them sealed till we have the medicals, then maybe I'll have a peek....... okay then, I will definitely have a look!!!
